firearms, then the government could force them to sell those guns back to the government. >> let's talk about the proposals -- fair enough. let's talk about what's been proposed by the president. starting with universal background checks. why would it not be in the interest of the nra, again, which represents law-abiding gun owners to have more background checks so guns don't fall into the hands of criminals or people with mental problems, which makes law-abiding gun owners look bad? >> as you know, savannah, the nra is a long-term supporter of the background system of people who go to gun shops and buy firearms. back the last time we had this dispute, you will recall that a lot of the rhetoric surround what the government likes to call the gun show loophole. which means that if you and i go to a gun show and sell one another a gun, since neither one of us are dealers, a private transaction, doesn't have to go through the system. not a lot of guns are sold that way, but we suggested that the government, if they wanted to, could have a booth at a gun show, the bureau of alcohol, tobacco,

the various governing bodies cut him any slack at this point? >> i think it's unlikely. i'm surprised, he's 41 years old. if the motivation for all of this is to get back into sports, it would be years before he'd be allowed to do that. by the way, the civil ramifications are also hugely significant here. he's worth about $100 million reportedly. and just one lawsuit alone, a federal whistleblower case going on, he could be looking at more than $90 million in damages. triple damages in that case if it continues to go forward. he could be completely wiped out financially. >> right. he said he lost $75 million in sponsorships in one day. could those sponsors that counted on him and dropped him sue him? >> yes. there are so many legal ramifications, we can't go into them all. yes, the sponsorships, defamation case, whistleblower case. all of the people he sued because he said they were liars, and they paid him money, he should have to return that with interest and attorneys' fees. >> thank you for being part of the discussion. appreciate it. erica? >>> thanks. turning to the hostage situation in
